NHTSA to conduct investigation on GM’s recent recall

On Wednesday, February 26 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced that it would investigate General Motor’s recent decision to recall 1.6 million vehicles with defective ignition switches. The recalled cars have been linked to 13 deaths and 31 front-end crashes. 

With legislation that went into effect last year, the NHTSA now has the authority to fine automakers suspected of safety violations up to $35 million. 

GM issued an apology on Tuesday, February 25 admitting that the recalls were delayed.

Manufacturers should be held accountable when they release defective products for consumption. If you have been injured by a manufacturers negligence, you should not be responsible for covering costs related to your injuries.
